If you are a veteran with a limited income and no longer able to work, you may qualify for a Veterans Disability Pension or the Veterans Pension for Veterans 65 or older.

Veteran's in the U.S. get treated nicely. If you are unable to work, the military gives you a pension. It's especially easy to get when you are 65 or older. Even if you are disabled they will give you a pension.

The military police protect the base from suicide bombers and other terrorist attacks these days. They also act as escorts for important figures and protect them as they go through the bases. As a military police officer you lead Maneuver and mobility support operations, Area security operations, Law & order operations, Internment/resettlement operations, and Police intelligence operations.

The army medical corp is responsible for the health of soldiers in combat jobs like infantry and armor. As and officer in the medical corp you lead a team to do anything from allergic reactions to emergency operations on soldiers.

Aviation is responsible for flying soldiers in and out of combat. They usually fly OH-58 Kiowas, UH-60 Black Hawks, CH-47 Chinooks and AH-64 Apaches. As an officer in aviation, you will fly these aircrafts to transport soldiers or transport supplies by air. You will also coordinate where to transport them to and when. In emergencies you will also use the guns on the helicopters to eliminate enemies if the infantry or armor soldiers need help.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a very common disorder in veterans. This is usually triggered by horrific event from combat. Symptoms of this include nightmares, flashbacks, and insomnia. All of the branches of the military provide free therapy sessions for veterans suffering from PTSD.

Service Commitment

Service Commitment | Army ROTC - Aspect 3 |
After you graduate, you'll have the opportunity put your leadership skills to good use. That practical experience could put you years ahead of your civilian peers.

Anyone who goes through ROTC has to agree to an 8 year service obligation upon graduation. You do 4 years active and 4 years reserve for scholarship winners. For regular cadets you can choose to serve the 8 years in the ready reserve or National Guard while pursuing a civillian career.
